This powerful concert and contest overture opens with driving, syncopated rhythms reminiscent of the hustle and bustle of the big city. A beautiful, lyric "Andante" section provides the needed contrast before returning to the frenetic activity of the opening. The contemporary sounds and rhythms of this work will make it popular with students and audiences alike!
